Does a mid-century biopic of former head of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover directed by Clint Eastwood sound a little dry? What if it had a significant amount of hot dude-on-dude kissing? Great, we’ll race to you to wait in line for two years! Over at ET Canada, the Lone Ranger’s Armie Hammer opened up about what it like to kiss costar J. Edgar‘s Leonardo Dicaprio for the upcoming film. “It’s the same kind of thing as if you walk onto a set and they hand you a machine gun and [say], ‘Shoot this like you know what you’re doing’ – you can’t grab that thing and go, ‘uh…’ – you kind of have to go, ‘Okay, I know what I’m doing,’ and you’ve just got to go for it,” Hammer said, in a delightfully phallic metaphor. “It wasn’t that weird – I have never kissed a guy – it’s not something I’m going to do in my private life, but at the end of it I was, like, man, there is a lot of weird hype.” WHY ISN’T THIS MOVIE OUT ALREADY? It feels like we’ve been waiting for a billion, trillion years to learn about Edgar Whatever His Name Is!
As for his friendship with erstwhile make-out buddy DiCaprio, Hammer adds, “You always have a special relationship with someone when you finish a movie with them, but…he’s got a bunch of stuff he is doing after that, I’ve got a bunch of stuff I’m doing….we didn’t start a book club together or anything,” Naw, man, just save it for the sequel. Save it for our dreams, and the sequel.
